Emily Blunt has recently been talking about her role in the adaptation of the hit book Girl On A Train, saying that while the action may be relocating from London to New York, she will still play the character as English. Now she may also have some co-stars (alongside the previously cast Rebecca Ferguson and Haley Bennett), as Variety reports that Chris Evans and Jared Leto are being eyed for the movie.
Paula Hawkin’s book made history when it spent 20 consecutive weeks at the top of the hardback bestseller charts, and ‘follows a woman (Blunt) devastated by her recent divorce who spends her commute fantasizing about a seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day. Along the way, she becomes entangled in a mystery revolving around the married couple.’
Assuming they sign on Evans will be Ferguson’s husband, while Leto will be the hubby of Bennett.
Out director Tate Taylor (The Help) is set to helm the movie from Cressida Wilson’s script. It’s believed shooting will start later this year.
